Inspirational Shafiu Fatawu inked his name into the annals of Asante Kotoko SC with yet another sublime spot kick to earn the Porcupine Warriors only their second win over Berekum Chelsea in the last 9 matches.
The former Inter Allies and Techiman Eleven attacker extended his lead at the summit of the log with yet another game changing goal despite the opening goal from Emmanuel Gyamfi.
Asante Kotoko SC have endured nightmare score lines against their Berekum based opponents led by 4 wins in 15 meetings and wasted no time in making it five wins amidst threat from their inspired opponents.
Emmanuel Gyamfi capped an impressive game with the first goal for the Reds moments into the second before Fatawu kept his cool to coolly slot home the insurance goal to seal a 2-0 win at the Baba Yara stadium.
Asante Kotoko SC have now recorded a 100 percent win rate in all their three fixtures at the Baba Yara stadium without conceding a single goal.
Ck Akunnor’s men consolidated their place at the summit of the log with that win as they prepare for the return leg in Berekum at the start of the second round.
